Donmar Warehouse

LOCAL Young Writers

Local 16-18 year olds are given the chance to tell the stories they want to tell, in the way they want to tell them. Through weekly writing workshops lead by professional playwright Molly Taylor, they develop their storytelling and playwriting skills, learn about the process of developing work for the stage, and are given access to leading professionals in the industry, receiving one-to-one sessions with mentors. The Writers eventually get to see a scene of their work on the Donmar stage, directed and performed by professionals.

Applications are now closed. To find out more about our next LOCAL Young Writers programme, sign up to our mailing list here.
